FT. Barça 4.0 PSV.
Despite the goals, the second half wasn't as good as the first one. All 3 points I had pointed out at the break were invisible from then on. Little chances from long range, control but not very effective, and we were letting the visitors feel more and more comfortable.
This match remainded me to the Barça 3—0 Chelsea. Good first half but worse second 45', although 3 goals came after half time.
However, as always, quality makes the difference. Dembélé, who had been the origin of Messi's free-kick goal, delivered another piece of individual magic for his 5th goal in 6 games. The Mosquito is here.
And Leo. What can I say? Free-kick and two more 'easy' golazos. Cause he makes them look easy, even the FK. Hattrick in the first UCL game. Not bad, huh?
Shame Umtiti got his second yellow card and therefore sending-off. Although this will inevitably make Samu rest in the next fixture. Lenglet, Arthur and Vidal were the substitutions but, as usual, came a bit too late.
Anyway, good way to start the European campaign. VISCA EL BARÇA!
PS: my prediction had been a 4-1 with bicycle kick and hattrick from Messi
